Most drugs have a large list of nonsevere or mild adverse effects which do not rule out continued usage. These effects depend on individual sensitivity, and can include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, malaise, vomiting, headache, dermatitis, dry mouth, etc. Check commonly reported side effects . These can be considered a form of pseudo-allergic reaction, as not all users experience these effects; many users experience none at all.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit the FDA MedWatch website or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Multi-Mex Distributor Inc. Dietary Supplements: Recall - Product Packaging Mimics OTC Antibiotics

[Posted 05/10/2011]

AUDIENCE: Consumer, Pediatrics

ISSUE: Multi-Mex Distributor, Inc., recalled dietary supplements that may be labeled as antibiotic drugs. The recall was initiated after an FDA inspection revealed the product packaging mimics antibiotics readily available in Mexico and possibly familiar to Hispanic consumers.

The products were distributed in the following states: Georgia, Tennessee, California, Illinois, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Colorado, and Indianapolis, to the retail store and distributors.

BACKGROUND: Warnings of these dietary supplements made news in Texas on Thursday, April 28th, when four children were taken to a Medical Center due to worsening illnesses after being given dietary supplements the parents may have believed were antibiotics and which were packaged to resemble antibiotics that are readily available as over the counter drugs in Mexico. Giving the dietary supplement delayed legitimate medical treatment. Although the labels were printed in English and Spanish, the packaging appears to be an intentional marketing ploy to mimic antibiotics and directed at Hispanic buyers. It was determined the children had been given a dietary supplement, Amoxilina, which the parents may have believed was the antibiotic Amoxicillin.

RECOMMENDATION: Consumers who have purchased any of the above listed products are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Retail stores and distributors are to return the products to Multi-Mex. See the Press Release for listing of  recalled products.

Healthcare professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events, side effects, or product quality problems related to the use of these products to the FDA's MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program:

  • Complete and submit the report Online: www.fda.gov/MedWatch/report.htm
  • Download form or call 1-800-332-1088 to request a reporting form, then complete and return to the address on the pre-addressed form, or submit by fax to 1-800-FDA-0178
